Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi I am new here but I thought I would let everyone know on these forums what I have found from emailing Games Workshop.
For the past two months I have been hearing constant desputes between
saying Dark Eldar is going to be wiped from Warhammer 40k and things
"You will never be able to use Dark Eldar again in a year or two." This
really scared me considering I have put almost $2,000 into my Dark Eldar
Army. As a valued customer and a fan of Games Workshop and Warhammer
think it is fair to let me and others know the fate of their Dark Eldar
Army. I know you guys have lots of things to work on, however all Dark
Eldar fans are biting their nails waiting for a final word on what is
done. I hope you guys understand and can keep the Dark Eldar alive. I
many people including myself that love Dark Eldar and will continue to
them for as long as Dark Eldar is around. Thanks for taking the time
reading one of the many emails you guys probably get, I appreciate it.
sent this to the wrong section of Games Workshop could you please
this to someone who could answer my question or respond.
Thank You Games Workshop,
Camden (A Warhammer 40k Fan)
Long live the Dark Eldar!
We have no plans to discontinue Dark Eldar. They are still a legal and
viable army and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

Think what you want to think kind of iffy on what he means
I still think they could screw us all over.....
Btw I don't know if this is a big concern to all of you but I have heard many rumors about DE being nuked out of W 40k and it has scared me so I have been researching everything I can find.
HOPE THIS HELPS SOME PEOPLE!
They arent being discontinued, thats all you need to know. Not now, not ever.
Yeah I was told that by a gamesworkshop employee who is a dedicated dark eldar player. Who supposedly an insider at GW. I dunno.
Games Workshop is screwing with our heads.
GW isnt screwing with your head.. your just being paranoid. I asked a similar question before i started collecting Dark Elves, bcoz the models are nice but about 5 years old now.. so i didnt want to buy them and then have cool new ones released.. they basically told me they were no plans to do it any time soon. So i trusted that
Its understandable for someone to be worried about their expensive army, which has had countless hours of effort put into it, to be made redundant. But they have told you so just relax. If i was you i would be less worried about them being discontinuing DE, and more worried about them not revising them any time soon.. personally i like dark eldar but they are in need of a new codex and some more power.

My other question I guess then is if they do change the dark eldar looks and such will we have to buy new models to be considered legal. Or will everything still be the same we will just have older looking armies? Thanks guys for input
The tradition has always been to keep what you already have and play with that, some minor converions MAY be needed but thats all. So don't fret about not being able to field your existing models although they may look dated!
Well well well I have some talking to do to the guys down at my local hobby shops. Can't stand it, they would say something like that then not even know wtf they are talking about. THANKS for info!
I very much doubt they'd change around their core models...Kind of like making all marines come standard with boltguns....As long as it looks like one, it is one. I have some second edition marines that are ugly as all hell and have crappy looking bolters, butthey still cover all the bases
Well I havent heard anything official, like most of us...
...but the word that I got from a 5 time Golden Demon winner (who has contacts @ GW) is that they're currently being revised alonside the regular Eldar. First comes orks though, they're getting back thier 'kults', or whatnot. Then next comes Eldar, with thier new plastic models and Codex. Either at the same time, or just after Eldar, the Dark Eldar will get thier Codex revision. There were rumors that they were trying to combine the Eldar and Dark Eldar Codexes into one army with different "traits" to represent the differences. THe Codex ended up being too long, almost as big as the BGB itself, so they split it back up again. I dont know if they're getting updated models or not, (that would be most awesome, considering what theyve been doing lately).
Either way, just as the GW employee said, theyre not getting rid of the Dark Eldar anytime soon!
Out of all the versions of this rumour this is the one that I like the best - new Codex, possibly new mini"'s, a decision to keep DE seperate and another hint at their survivability once again. All good stuff!
